A JSP represents a web page, exactly the same as any other HTML web page. You can just put the address of the JSP in the link - if you click on the link, your JSP will be executed. For example:

<a href="http://somewebsite.com/hello/customerdetails.jsp">Click here for details</a>

Usually, you'd want to pass some parameter to the JSP, so that it knows of which customer the details should be displayed. For example:

<a href="http://somewebsite.com/hello/customerdetails.jsp?cust_id=123">Click here for details of customer 123</a>

Investigate the target attribute of the tag.

Use ajax.

- user clicks id
- you make ajax call to jsp page to get the info for that id
- return that info in a json object
- use a dialog box or display a hidden div to display the returned data in an organized fashion

This enables you to only pull and display the list of ids on page load, which makes the page faster. And provided your hardware is at least average and your server is set up correctly your users won't see much of a delay if any delay at all with the ajax call.
